Head of the Brass

Today's Big Town, Big Heart, the Daily News feature I edit (which should be up by the time you read this), features Tom Goodkind, former member of the Washington Squares, who now leads a community band in Battery Park City. I remember Tom from his Squares days, when he pioneered the beret-and-goatee look that became a trademark of Smithereens singer Pat DiNizio (who, if I remember correctly, followed Goodkind as sound man at Folk City).
